What You'll Need

  • 1 3-4 pound pot roast (lean chuck, bottom round, or rump)
  • 3 tablespoons flour (all-purpose)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion (halved, thinly sliced)
  • 1 rib celery (thinly sliced)
  • 8 ounces whole small button mushrooms (trimmed, washed, or sliced mushrooms)
  • 4 cloves garlic (smashed and minced)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram (or thyme)
  • 1 small bay leaf
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup dry red wine (such as pinot noir/burgundy or cabernet)
  • 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes

How to Make It

  1. In a large stockpot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over high heat. Combine flour with salt and pepper; dredge the pot roast in the mixture. Brown the roast quickly on all sides in the hot oil.
  2. Add the onions, celery, and mushrooms; reduce heat to medium and saute, stirring frequently, for about 2 to 4 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute longer.
  4. Add the thyme or marjoram, bay leaf, chicken broth, wine, and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer for 2 to 2 1/2 hours, or until the beef is very tender.
